  • Author: Seonkyoung Longest



For the Beef

  • 8 oz (1/2 lb) New York steak, sirloin or chuck
  • 1 tsp. Soy sause
  • 1 tsp. Shaoxing wine, rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1 tsp. Corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp. Black or white pepper

For the Brown Sauce

  • 1 Tbs. Soy sause
  • 1 Tbs. Oyster sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sugar (Add 1/2 tsp. more if you like sweeter side.)
  • 1 Tbs. Shaoxing wine, rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1 tsp. Corn starch
  • 1/8 tsp. Black or white pepper

For Stir Fry

  • 8 oz. (1/2 lb) Broccolini, broccoli or Chinese broccoli
  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • 1 oz. Fresh ginger (approximately 2 to 3 very thin slices)
  • 2 Tbs. High smoke point cooking oil (Such as peanut, canola, vegetable, sunflower or avocado oil)
  • 1 Green onion
  • 1 tsp. Sesame oil
  • Toasted sesame seeds


  1. Take big chunk of fat from beef and slice into 1/4 inch thin.

 In a mixing bowl, add sliced beef and rest of ingredients for beef. Mix well with your hand, set aside.

  2. While beef is marinate, let’s make sauce and prepare vegetables. 
In another mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for brown sauce. Whisk well, set aside.

  3. Cut dry bottom from broccolini and cut into halves, or bite sizes, set aside.

  4. Chop garlic and green onion. Mince fresh ginger and set aside.

  5. Heat a wok over high heat with approximately 1 cup water and bring it to boil. Add broccolini and blench for 1 minutes. Remove from heat and drain broccoli and set aside.
  6. Heat now-empty wok over hight heat until completely dried; add oil and swirl to coat. Add garlic and ginger, stir fry until you can smell the fragrance, about 30 seconds.

  7. Add marinated beef into wok, combine with garlic and ginger. Spread beef evenly bottom of work, and cook until edge is darken and crispy, about a couple minutes.
  8. Turn it over, and cook other side for a couple minutes or until edge is darken, crispy and beef is cooked 3/4 way and you can barely see red spots.
  9. Pour sauce we made earlier; stir fry until sauce has thicken, glossy and beef is coated evenly with sauce, about a minute. Stir frequently so sauce will not burn.
  10. Add blenched broccolini into beef and combine well, about 30 seconds. We don’t need to cook broccolini, just need to mixed with sauce and reheated.
  11. Remove from heat, stir in chopped green onion and sesame oil.
  12. Transfer to a serving plate, and garnish with some toasted sesame seeds if you desired.
 Serve with warm cooked Jasmine rice is the best!! 🙂
